No, I Really DO Need That Chocolate Milk
Finally! Something good exciting happened (as opposed to bad exciting). After all this weird stuff and dumb criminals and all, it's about time that something happy occurred.
In case I've never told you, I hate going to the grocery store. I hate grocery shopping. I like eating. I just hate shopping. But, in spite of my hatred of all things grocery (well, except for the actual food), I stopped at Albertson's after work yesterday to pick up a few things. You know, the "few" things that usually turn into a "bunch" of things. I need milk, but that chocolate milk looks good too - and it's on sale! I need tomato sauce, but I just can't live without those cookies at the end of the aisle - and they'd go so well with the chocolate milk that I don't need but I'm getting anyway. It goes like that sometimes, doesn't it?
So, I am checking out and things are adding up to more than the "few" things that I had planned on. But, wait! I have my $5 rewards certificate! So, I hand that to the cashier, and she swipes it and off comes $5. And then she swipes it again . . . and off comes another $5. And then she swipes it again . . .and off comes another $5! I had not one, not two, but THREE $5 off rewards on that certificate! So, my "few" things cost me $4.94!
And that was exciting! It really doesn't take much to make me happy :)
